In the same vein as schoolhouse
and vintage library
trends, the biology lab is making its way into home decor with a vengeance. We'll skip the brain-in-vat portion, thank you, but as for the bio charts, well, let's discuss...We don't normally think of the human gastronomical system as being a sight especially fit for dining and living room decor. However, the old charts are oddly appealing, and I suppose that it's no surprise. Often, their oversize images are akin to the quirky graphic patterns we've come to love in modernist textiles. Their quirkiness is lovable because it is
so unexpected and out of place. Or maybe it's the sense of nostalgia itself that we will always love about vintage finds.
Whatever the case, biology charts and other science lab inspired decor continue to be on the rise. Are you digging it?
We've some neat ones on etsy from seller's Lucky Little Dot, HelloVictory, and Finding Fabulous, however be prepared to fork over a pretty little penny.
